Frye Chapter 3 reading questions [Sep. 14th, 2004|09:37 pm]
[mood |working]
[music |Neighbor dogs barking]

1. Federalism is a way or organizing a nation so that two or more levels of government have formal authority over same land and people. In a Federalist system, the central government is granted shared power, the state government is granted shared power, and the citizens vote for state and central government officials. In a unitary government, the central government controls power to all the important places, the state government has little, if any, power, and the citizens vote for central government officials only. In a confederation the central government has allocated power given by states, the state government gives up some of its authority to the central government, but is sovereign, and citizens vote for state government officials. Federalism is important because it decentralizes politics and decentralizes policies. These grant citizens more opportunities to participate at different levels and the states can solve the same problem different ways.
2. The Constitution’s supremacy clause states that the ultimate authority is the US Constitution and ultimately in the hands of the national government. The supremacy of the national government was established in the American Federal system with the help of implied powers, commerce powers, the Civil War, and the struggle for racial equality.
3. States are obligated to grant each other full faith and credit (such as in honoring another state’s marriage certificate, etc,) they are obligated to extradite criminals wanted in other states, and all citizens of each state all receive privileges and immunities of any other state; this means that a state cannot be discriminate against a person from another state.
4. Dual Federalism is a system of government in which both the states and the national government remain supreme within their own spheres, each responsible for some policies. However, in America today we have Cooperative Federalism which is a system of government in which powers and policies are shared between states and national government with the national government having more power. Fiscal Federalism, the pattern of spending, taxing and providing grants in a federal system, is important because it is the cornerstone of the national government’s relations with state and local governments.
5. The two major types of federal aid are categorical grants and block grants. Categorical grants provide state and local governments with most of their federal aid and are grants that can be used only for specific purposes. Block grants are federal aid given to states or communities to be used in any area the states please. The scramble for federal aid is fueled because when there is more money at stake, more people will argue about the distribution of it. Although the national government cannot give direct orders to state and local governments, they can influence the cooperation of the governments by offering more aid to those who cooperate. Some states would rather not receive aid than comply with the federal rules under threat.

[music |sugarcult- beautiful day]

for lazier hoes than myself... nikirah for one...

President Bush (I support him)

1. Taking the war to the enemy! Not afraid to do what's needed to win the war on Terror.
2. Turning the economy around.
3. Able to put what's best for the country ahead of what's best for his poll results.

Kerry (I don't support him)

1. Voted in favor of using force in Iraq (Too bad he changed his mind when the going got tuff.)
2. Against Gay Marriage (Although he's afraid to take a real stand on it. Sitting on the fence so it doesn't effect him in the polls.)
3. Voted for the increased FCC fines <http://myspinzone.randomdrivel.com/displayarticle260.html> to crack down on indecent antics on broadcast radio and television. (OK I lied, I don't really like this, just couldn't think of a third thing I liked... Sorry, I really tried...)
President Bush

Pro - -
1. He's not afraid to do what's needed to win the war on Terror.

Con -
1. He doesn't know what's needed to win the war on terror. He has intentionally "confused" his dad's former enemy (Iraq) with the "terrorists." Whether Sadham was a "baddie" or not, Iraq was a legitimate sovereign nation and we attacked it without provocation and without justification. This is an unsound foreign policy that may come back to haunt us in the future. The invasion and occupation of Iraq has nothing to do with the war on terror and has actually served as a catalyst to increase the actual threat to America.

Pro --
2. Turning the economy around.

Con -
2. He turned it in the wrong direction.

Pro - -
3. He doesn't appear concerned with his poll results

Con --
3. His poll results are sliding fast (okay -- that one may actually be a "pro" for me.)

John F. Kerry

Con -
1. He's a bit wooden

Pro -
1. Many people will be able to look past this based solely on his opponent. Moreover, as a bigger “pro,” he picked as his running mate, John Edwards, who is anything but wooden. He may be the most charismatic candidate ever.

Con -
2. He may be viewed as contradicting himself because he voted for a resolution granting broad powers the President and authorizing him to go to war if necessary and then voted against a bill approving an addition $87 Billion to fund the war

Pro -
2. While he voted for a resolution granting broad powers the President and authorizing him to go to war if necessary, this was based on the President’s promise to Congress that he would only go to war if necessary and that he would first get support for the international community. The President didn't keep his promises. In addition, the informed voter will know that Kerry supported measures to fund the troops, just not the $87 Billion package offered by Bush. The informed voter will know that Kerry supported the troops and did not call for their withdrawal from Iraq. The informed voter will know that Bush tried to push through bills that would cut benefits to veterans. The informed voters won't like the fact that Bush tried to secretly push through bills that would cut overtime pay for hundreds of thousands of servicemen serving in the Armed forces.

Con -
3. He took the GOP's bait and aired his views on gay marriage - a red herring issue.

Pro -
3. Congress killed the proposed amendment. Republicans voted against it. Cheney's daughter is a lesbian and his wife openly supports gay marriage. The herring is dead.
